2013 Rogers Cup top seed Novak Djokovic stormed to the third round of the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event in Montreal with a 6-2, 6-1 win over German Florian Mayer in just 55 minutes on Tuesday evening.
The two-time defending champion broke Mayer twice in each set and saved all seven break points he faced during their fifth career encounter (5-0).
Match statistics: aces (3-2), double faults (1-2), winners (22-6), unforced errors (21-20), total points won (58-37).
Nole entertained the spectators by dancing to “Get Lucky” following the match.
“It was a little agreement I had with my friends when we had vacation time a few weeks ago,” explained Djokovic. “This is one of the summer hits. We listened to that song quite a lot. We had a lot of dancing going on. I said, Why not? I’ll do it after the first match in Montreal.”
Novak will next meet world no.66 Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan who beat no.355-ranked Canadian wild card Filip Peliwo in three sets.
The Serbian world no.1 is chasing his 15th Masters title and fourth Canada Open crown (2007, 2011-12).
He improved to a 40-6 match record on the season (21-2 on hard).
